7:04 am
people not only the labor and the other left wing parties of the trail represented here but ordinary folk coming in off the street have to listen. as far as the jews are concerned they are adamant that this law has to be changed radically or ditched i travel to bates jang in northern galilee to find out what the people were saying on the ground. some of his from a minority excluded by israel in its nation state law she's a druze arab and her two sons were killed during military service for israel. she makes a promise. that if this law doesn't change i will get your bodies exuma in this military cemetery and bury you in your grandfather's land. back home is her youngest son yeah i mean his brother's fuad who was eighteen and
7:05 am
twenty three year old sylar gave compulsory service in the military yeah mean became a prison officer in an israeli jail and he says that experience changed his perspective he became a human rights lawyer and activists for palestinians in the occupied west bank. i feel sad in the blood of my brothers was sheered and praying for a lie in an illusion they may have thought the military would give them rights but it was just proves that israel used them like mr aris. the druze are in all ranks for example major general camille abu rukun is the new coordinator of operations in the occupied territories there is no public comment from him any soldier showing dissent is suspended. we ask the soldiers and officers not to get involved in this load and to depend on us terry for and his delegation were given the promise of a new law giving benefits to minorities in the military but back in beit jan and

7:07 am
in what most people in this village believe is a racist little. the question now is how much more pressure can be put on the government will there be any change will it's highly unlikely that benjamin netanyahu will change his policies but then public pressure can affect us there are further protests planned not only by crews who represent two percent of the population but also the israeli arabs who represent twenty percent and then of course the option of more possible demonstrations or the joining of demonstrations by jews is unclear no one knows really where this is going right now. families in garza have held funerals for two palestinians killed by israeli forces on friday fifteen year old and twenty five year old died during clashes along the gaza border between the two hundred twenty others palestinians have been staging weekly

7:22 am
a number of people here are issuing or expressing their support for the n.r.a. and disputing with some of the members of the crowd but the police have kept them at quite a distance from the main crowd so it's been an entirely peaceful event this is an outgrowth of the march for our lives movement that began after the slayings at marjorie stoneman douglas high school in florida earlier this year students from that group are supporting this rally they've also been traveling around the country in a bus caravan trying to get people organized to vote on issues of gun control what they would like to see among other things is a comprehensive. ban on assault weapons in the united states universal background checks of all people including people who sell guns privately or in so-called gun shows as well as an end to the issue that recently
7:23 am
came to the fore of three d. principal guns all of these things that people here say are leading to mass carnage in the united states we had an opportunity to talk to a lady who's who lost her husband in the recent killings at a newspaper in an apple is my husband works in the sale in town where the men's to war pink shorts. it was a bucolic lovely little town. and it happened there and her. in elementary schools it happens in high schools happens in movie theaters there's nowhere doesn't happen anymore so we can't afford to be complacent if we want to be safe we need. to be sensible gun control and come out of our corners with their dukes down and find out where we agree because i think there's lots of room for agreement here in addition to demanding stricter gun laws people here are mounting
7:24 am
a strong drive to register people to vote and to vote on this issue including young people the age for voting in the united states is eighteen years old eighteen year olds do not have a strong record of voting in great numbers but the people here who are organizing this and events like it hope to change that police in the u.s. state of oregon have broken off a right wing rally in the city of portland. flashbang devices were used to disperse hundreds of demonstrators and counter protests police say the crowds who ordered to leave after throwing rocks and bottles at offices germany's began opening while it's cold centers where refugees can stay while they seek asylum government ministers say the shelters can speed up asylum applications but critics say the move further isolates refugees dominic kane reports from bavaria. on a hot day in august people cute into the regensburg and care center right now this
7:25 am
is their home inside a series of residential blocks makeshift children's play areas and offices kitchens with ample space to feed the hundreds of people expected there are classrooms where children will be encouraged to learn german all part of an effort to ease the worries of people whose status remains undecided if not all i know is what you did but if they keep telling me to wait every week every day the police come to deport people to finland iraq syria sweden what is that everyone is afraid they'll get sick if they stay in here every day we're stressed about getting deported we don't need anything from here i just want to stay here in germany and work and make a good life for myself. in fact this center has been housing migrants and refugees for some time meaning not much is really new here other than the name analysts say
7:26 am
the principle of the scheme is to bring all the migrants in the agencies processing them into one manageable area the centers were sold as innovation and some of these elements i think the centralization of different authorities in one place could be a good innovation but to what extent will it happen the next month have to show something the man who came up with the plan will be particularly keen to see. is. the point is to maintain order while preserving humanity we need to balance readiness to help with what is actually possible to achieve no country can take an unlimited number of refugees. the federal government clearly believes that institutions like this one and the other six being set up are an answer to the migration crisis but still the question over civil liberties about the access people have in these institutions is something that's really playing on the minds

7:29 am
if it means using their crops this lake behind me is the reason that for now dutch people aren't too worried the ice or mary is the key water reservoir in the netherlands in times of drought but even this huge water besson containing about three and a half million olympic swimming pools of fresh water could hit critical levels if it doesn't start raining in the next few weeks. well the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events around the world are being attributed to climb to nj people in the netherlands now wonder if their dry summer on record could be just the start of things to come but we can expect more summers like this in the future where it's really a big drop problem we are very good in managing to watch water now we have to learn how we can manage through the water with the forecast showing no significant rains over the next two weeks the dutch are facing a real stress test for the future in
